From a reader:
“As I was walking home today along 15th Street, just across the street from Meridian Hill Park, I happened to notice the crude but frightening makeshift weapon you see pictured: a half-brick stuffed in the bottom of a tube sock, which is tied at the opening. I assume it’s a simple bludgeon. Creepy. Someone could be literally killed by one whack with that thing.”
It’s painful to remember that we can live in a pretty sick world at times.
